Nice! Is that from a sheet of flash or custom?

My kid is addicted. He's slowly working toward a lower arm sleeve. I want him to slow down some, he got one a week or so ago and is ready to go back. Mostly all custom work. I have 4, and have had 4 since way back when. No current plans to get any more.

In my younger days I was a tattoo artist, worked at Tattoo city in Belleville. Also did parties and had a booth at a flea market in Wayne next to the old State Wayne theater. I did two of mine myself when it was slow in the shop (the perils of a bored tattoo artist).

Best story: A regular customer comes in, he was a biker who went by 'Lucky'. He got a winged wheel with the words 'Born to Lose' underneath. I was in a hurry to get to a tatoo party. Not paying attention, he ended up with 'Born to Loose'. He was a bit upset, but he came back in a few days and I fixed it by putting a wreath of black roses around the wheel which covered the words, then doing the correct words below the wreath. He was happy (if not 'Lucky') and needless to say the entire thing was a freebie.

Never saw him again though.....

it's custom we sat down and talked about it and changed the drawing about 5 times and even changed a few things while he was working the skin. ive had the concept for about 6 months now and just finally went and got it. now im addicted and have a half sleeve for the same arm almost fully planned out.
